Abstract Worker exposures to respirable free silica (7631869) were determined at five granite processing facilities in Vermont and twelve similar facilities in Georgia during 1973 and 1974. The surveys were part of a NIOSH study of silica exposures of workers in the granite industry (SIC-1423). The authors recommend that exposures in two operations, wire sawing and polishing, for both Vermont and Georgia facilities be reduced.
